Baptism

First comes right, then a rite,^
right-of-way to the waters of life,
before we descend at Jordan's command*
and rise from immersion to light.**

Last, was the dark of my past.
First, grace from I Am for the grasp.
Then, as now, that Jordan bow
leads us to the trust that will last.

Each rite of passage makes straight +
the way of the Lord in our day.
The seed planted down rises to crown
the soul, feeding hope to obey.
__________
^ John 1:12; 1 John 4:19
* Matthew 3:1-11
** Romans 6:4
+ John 1:23
